Had a lunch at Bill's the lunch menu consist of mainly sandwiches/salads. Good food and service. Street parking no parking lot, next to a former movie theater which is now the local preforming arts home.

A quaint and quiet little Bistro situated on the edge of Downtown Owensboro. Upon entry I was greeted with smiles from the front of house staff and quickly seated. I ordered drinks and bread was brought to the table. Let the night begin. To begin the bread was fantastic. A thick cut, I believe, sour dough with room temperature butter... More

Passing through Owensboro on our travels back to Pennsylvania we had the pleasure of dining at Bill's Restaurant last Friday evening. We were pleasantly greeted by a staff member. We didn't realize the size of this establishment and didn't have a reservation but they kindly accommodated my husband and me with a table for two. The place had a pleasant... More

Thought they had a limited lunch menu but it was fine. My Chicken fruit salad was delicious and would recommend it. My friend had A grilled Salmon salad and it look great. I especially liked the low noise atmosphere. The waitress was not pushy and did not rush us.

First, a disclaimer. I rarely can indentify the ingredients in a dish. If I am blown away by a dish, I ask for details. As was the case with this dish. We each started with a cold asperagus bisque, combined with tomato puree, and pistachio oil. Soothing to the body and soul. Main course, we both had the Icelandic Turbo.... More

According to their Facebook, Google, website, and Tripadvisor, Bill's closes at 10:00pm on Saturday nights. We show up at 9:15pm and the woman behind the bar says they are closed...there are multiple groups of people still eating...so what is going on? No apologies...they close whenever they feel like it. If they do no want my business, that is fine because... More

My daughter and I stopped in for lunch. The decor is like a step back in time. The wait staff is very friendly, personable, and helpful. We tried the crab cakes as the server said they always sell out. I can see why. We loved them. The coleslaw was excellent and not typical. The fresh cornbread was remarkable. The highlight... More

We tried this establishment last summer as we had a coupon book from a local fundraising establishment. I'm glad we had the BOGO as that price was still terrible. I just never got around to reviewing as I guess as we were both so disappointed. I had a steak and it was nothing to write home about. My wife had... More
